Mandatory New Think Warning Reg: FO99

As I was on my daily morning jog, I hatched an almost absurd idea in my head: what if I challenged myself today by deliberately fasting? I know that sounds like a recipe for disaster (I thought the same), but I thought it would be useful to strengthen my mind to a point where I’d be able to resist temptation even when I’m extremely hungry. I never back down from a challenge, so I eagerly set off to work without having a single bite to eat.

For a while, I was managing just fine, as my work was keeping me occupied, but I quickly became uneasy. Luckily, no one brought over any appetizing foods that day with my wife’s usual weekend crew, and we were all pretty busy, so I didn’t have much time to think about how hungry I was. I finally decided to eat one of my granola bars at about noon, and I never thought I’d be so happy to eat such a crumbly snack in my life. Obviously, it didn’t fully satiate my hunger, but it was enough to get me through the rest of the day. Fasting could potentially be an interesting thing to experiment with, but I think I was a bit too overzealous on this occasion. Next time, I’ll probably fast not on a whim with a healthy meal prepared for when I can’t take the hunger any longer.

I can see body changes now compared to day zero for sure the journey is far from over, however, I am winning the battle. Feeling more confident I did an Arnie pose. Not there yet but hey ho.

Another downside to my little experiment this morning was the fact that I felt slightly drained as I was working out later on. It didn’t help that I was doing unfamiliar exercises, and I ended the workout feeling a bit unsatisfied with my effort. I’ll have to remember not to commit to such impromptu plans in the future because the consequences could be more far-reaching than I’d expect.

Great for a day off but think I heard rats in the attic last night, our neighbor’s house is abandoned so spent the day in the attic putting poison down at strategic locations, there is a shit load of nails sticking out and at times I felt like a contortionist.
